At the beginning of this year, we announced the news that we were to be involved with a special event called Life is Wonderful. We were pleased to donate our pink and taupe Ella leather tote bag for a privately held auction. The intended purpose of this auction was to raise money and awareness for Global Citizen, an organisation dedicated to fighting worldwide poverty and inequality.
The event honoured the three surviving men of the infamous Rivonia trial, which took place in South Africa in 1964. Denis Goldberg, Ahmed ‘Kathy’ Kathrada and Andrew Mlangeni were all sentenced to life imprisonment at the conclusion of the trial alongside Nelson Mandela. In the name of racial equality, freedom and justice, the three men between them served 74 years in prison.
The event was a huge success and raised over £120,000 for Global Citizen. The visit of Denis Goldberg, Ahmed ‘Kathy’ Kathrada and Andrew Mlangeni brought great joy for many, including 40 young people who were hosted alongside the three at Downing Street by David Cameron.
The three men also received the Freedom of the City of London at Guildhall in front of an audience of 200 people, in recognition of their fight for freedom and racial equality. It is a ceremonial and prestigious award first introduced in the 13th Century, recipients of which include Lord Nelson and J.K Rowling.
We are pleased to have been part of such an important event and glad that our handbags could help make a change for those less fortunate across the world. Thank you to the organisers for giving us the chance to be involved, to everyone who donated and to all of you for helping to share the news of this fantastic event.
